Description

If you perform a search in mc, you can see the results in format

path/to/file.txt:123

where 123 is the line number with a match. Currently mc supports only opening the file at this line only using internal viewer, would be nice to support with external pagers as well.

For example I'm using neovim/vim as a pager, it has a plugin (and I hope will be in the core sometime soon) - https://github.com/kopischke/vim-fetch

See the issue in NeoVim? - https://github.com/neovim/neovim/issues/1281

Replying to akochkov:

Currently mc supports only opening the file at this line only using internal viewer,

Not only.

would be nice to support with external pagers as well.

This is already done for years.

For example I'm using neovim/vim as a pager, it has a plugin (and I hope will be in the core sometime soon) - https://github.com/kopischke/vim-fetch

Right now you can add nvim to /usr/share/mc/mc.lib, section "[External editor or viewer parameters]" and it should work.
